A new charitable body has been set up, The Lord Lyon Society, Registered Charity Number SC050846, to give our Scottish and international public the opportunity to contribute to the conservation and digitization of the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland. This will not only protect an unique part of our national patrimony but will, in the longer term provide free access to the Register and its related Court Books. If you are interested in helping, please click on the badge above for further details.
The Public Register of All Armorial Bearings in Scotland was created by the Scottish Parliament in the reign of Charles II. The Lyon Court has created a year- long series of events to celebrate the 350th anniversary year: to view the programme, please click on the logo.
